Hello fellow Lewisians and here we are at week three of the streaming of the Lewis series.
Seeing as we are all self isolating, what better way to pass the time than to watch the second episode of the first series, Old School Ties. Another good episode with good actors. There is the great British character actor, Owen Teale, as the ‘professional Geordie’ Nicky Turnbull. For most people he is best known as Alliser Thorne in Game of Thrones.
In this episode we also have the lovely Gina McKee. She appeared very briefly in the Morse episode, Service of All the Dead (1987). Gina never seems to be out of work and is again another great British character actor. For many people she is best known for playing Bella in one of my favourite films, Notting Hill.
After spending 18 months watching and re watching the Lewis series for my book I still love this series and many of the episodes are some of my favourites in the Morse Universe. Many of the episodes are my ‘comfort’ episodes’ (for a list of my ‘comfort’ episodes click HERE to read my post about them).
I hope many of you will be able to join me tomorrow night, March 15th. Let’s watch and enjoy together.
And last but not least please think about buying my book on the Lewis TV series. It is available in paperback and a Kindle version.
VERY IMPORTANT: For all those outside the UK you should be aware that the UK British Summer Time has ended and we are now on GMT. This means that the clocks went back one hour.

You don’t have to join Twitch to watch but if you do join (it’s free) it has only the minimal amount of signing up protocol to go through and this will allow you to chat to me and everybody else.
Not only can you enjoy watching the episode but you can chat (via text box) with other Morse fans. Some people who have watched the episodes on the live stream have said that they have not only learned more about the episodes but come to appreciate episodes they had previously disliked.
Please join me and many others to watch this great episode on the social media platform, (one of the biggest in the world) TWITCH and watch the episode on a live stream. Twitch is FREE to join and FREE to watch.
For those not in the know in regard to Twitch, when I write ‘watch and chat’ the chat is via a text window so there is no actual talking over the episode.
To ‘chat’ (this means to type in the chat window that runs alongside the video) you need to register but that is all rather simple. It’s only a matter of choosing a screen name and entering your email address.
So, over the next weeks I am hoping to live stream all 33 of the Lewis episodes on Twitch. Twitch is one of the biggest social media sites in the world which allows people to live stream their various activities.
I am hoping that many of you will be able to join me on Sunday 15th March at 8pm GMT.
I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have become Patrons of the site and also a huge thank you to those who have made donations. What do I mean by Patrons?
What is Patreon? Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. It’s a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships with their subscribers, or “patrons”.
With Patreon you set up how much you wish to pay monthly. There are three tiers, $5, $10 and $15. It’s like paying for a magazine subscription.
Patreon primarily uses Paypal which is easy to join and a safe way to send money. https://www.paypal.com/uk/home

I have started my own Facebook page. It is primarily an extension of this website. I decided to start the Facebook page as there has been times when I have an update to a review post or some interesting news or information but it was all to small to make into a full blown post here on my website. So, come and join and keep up-to-date with all that happens in the Morse universe.

I hope to see many of you there for a fun time at what has become known as the Sunday Club Lewis Night.
